    Default Any way to play torrents?

    I tried downloading an episode of Louie using bit torrent. When I played the ONLY file that actually would, there's no audio. Any way to download torrents compatible with my N7? Any suggestions? I used thepiratebay.se -thanks

    I would suggest that you download the movie or tv show via a torrent on your desktop,
    and the transfer said file to your N7 and the use an app like MX Player to play it.

    hope this helps

    I use MX player (along with the codecs) and so far it's been able to play my files just fine.

    I would suggest that you stop stealing content and start paying people for the work they do.

    Don't worry, we'll be fine.

    If audio is not coming in video then it may be in any other format for which your media player is not supporting on your phone. So you should use any other media player on your phone.

    What if he pays for cable like do, 150 a month, to me it easier to download than to pvr. Two reasons I can download as many things as I want, and i dont have to wait for the show to air. I paid for it I watch it, seems fair to me.

    You paid your cable company to watch it the way the cable company delivers it. Copyrighted episodes that are uploaded to torrent sites without permission are still illegally uploaded, so patronizing those torrent sites helps to support their activity.

    Comcast has a lot of movies and TV shows free on demand these days, and I would imagine other cable companies offer the same. In addition, many shows are freely streamable from the network's website.

    I'm confused. Is it OK to get torrents if you use a device tethered in violation of the carrier's rules?

    Times are changing, if cable companies can't make the content I pay for available when I want it without a cumbersome interface then I will get it how I choose and not feel bad about it. Seems to me cable companies need to catch up with the times. I'm in Canada we don't have Comcast, we are held by the balls by our cable providers. I don't use a VPN and I download TV shows every day for almost a decade, I'd think the govt if they really thought I was stealing would be at my door long ago.

    This post is correct. Sorry folks, but there are other places to discuss things of this nature, but this isn't one of them.
